Good morning and happy Saturday - welcome to December. I know that I say it all the time, but where did this year go! So what could the December challenge at Country View Crafts be??? Yep, you got it!
There are many stamp companies that I love, but I have to say that no one does Christmas quite like Tim Holtz, and I find myself coming back to old favourites year after year (and buying new favourites of course)
I started by making two gelli prints, one in pink, and one in blue. The pink one looks red in the top picture, and you'll be seeing the blue one in a few days.
I stamped Tim Holtz trees from an old Christmas set using Distress Oxides. I also added some script. I liked this but it looked a bit in your face.
So I toned it down a little by adding some white gesso spatters, it really makes all the difference.
The Noel stamp is also from an old Tim set. I added a black layer and stitched it onto my base card.
I did say that I was using my old favourite, I've had these Bigz dies for many years. I've cut them out on chipboard and added patterned papers.
And here we are, all done. Neil always says that I should make a few of each card, but I never know how a card is going to turn out until it's done. Now I've made the first one though I know that I could make a few more, but where's the fun in that lol.
I hope you have a very happy December, and thanks very much for looking x
